In what could have been a bit of an awkward moment, Mayor Bill Peduto and Gov. Tom Corbett joked at Thursday’s news conference — just days after Peduto endorsed fellow Democrat Tom Wolf to replace Corbett.
More than two dozen Allegheny County elected officials and Democratic Party leaders endorsed Tom Wolf for governor on Saturday afternoon.
With just weeks until the mayoral primary, Democratic hopeful Jack Wagner received another endorsement from a well-known Pittsburgh political figure.
They protect city residents and those who work in the city 24/7 — Pittsburgh’s police and firefighters — and Wednesday morning their unions announced a candidate for mayor.
It’s a ritual that we will see multiple times during the next few months — a candidate like Bill Peduto unveiling support from neighborhood community leaders.
